This week we will write our own instructions for smoothie making.

Monday: Follow the instructions on the hedgehog activity sheet to make your own leaf hedgehog. Can you see the title and the bossy words?

Friday: Finish off writing your smoothie instructions from yesterday if you need to. 

If finished, using your PSHE super sleep pictures from Wednesday's lesson or use the bed time routine pictures below, write instructions for a super sleep.  There are a lot of pictures to choose from, so just select 4 or 5 for a goodnight's sleep.  Use the instructions toolkit check sheet to help you remember what you need to include when writing instructions.

PSHE: This week we will be thinking about sleeping!

Ask key questions about the importance of sleep, for example: 

  • Why do you think we all need a good night's sleep? [To help the body rest and grow]
  • How do we know when our body is tired? [We feel sleepy, we may yawn, feel like we don't have much energy etc.]
  • How much sleep do you think children should get? [Although this will vary from child to child the average sleep required for a 5 year old is 11 hours. 
  • Why do babies and children need more sleep than adults? [Their bodies are still growing]
  • What do you do before you go to bed?
  • What helps you to sleep well?
  • How might you feel the next day if you haven't had enough sleep?


    From questions above identify key things children need to do before going to bed [e.g. put nightwear on, brush teeth, wash hands and face, bedtime story, cuddle teddy bear or blanket etc.]

    Show the children the picture of Harold the healthy giraffe's bedtime routine on the Super Sleep activity sheet.  Ask your child to cut out the pictures of bedtime routine activities and then stick them into the back of their red book in the correct order for their own bedtime routine. 

    If they want to, they can draw additional activities and include these.

    We will use these pictures to write instructions for a super sleep on Friday in our English lesson so it might be easier to stick the pictures down the page rather than across the page, leaving a space next to the picture for your instructions.
